Rams' Blake Bortles: Gets $1 million on new deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bortles signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Rams get a nice bargain with their backup quarterback, as any money Bortles receives on the new contract simply reduces the $6.5 million he's guaranteed from the Jaguars. He should be a big upgrade on 2017-18 backup Sean Mannion and isn't likely to face any serious competition for the No. 2 job this summer. Given the wealth of talent in the Los Angeles offense, Bortles could warrant fantasy consideration if Jared Goff misses time with an injury during the 2019 campaign.

Rams' Blake Bortles: Finds home with Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams and Bortles are close to an agreement on a contract, Jeff Darlington of ESPN reports.

With legitimate starting quarterback gigs few and far between throughout the league, Bortles will land one of the top available backup jobs. Working with coach Sean McVay and behind Jared Goff could do wonders for the five-year pro, who owns a 103:75 TD:INT in 75 career appearances.

Blake Bortles: Will visit with Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bortles is set to visit with the Rams on Monday, Michael Silver of Sports Illustrated reports.

This likely begins the transition for Bortles from a starter to a backup role since Jared Goff will continue to lead to Rams for the foreseeable future. Although Bortles struggled as a starter with Jacksonville, he'd be a quality backup, as he completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,718 yards, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2018.

Blake Bortles: Jettisoned from Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars released Bortles on Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Once the Eagles opted not to retain Nick Foles via the franchise tag, he's been linked to the Jaguars, who gave him a four-year, $88 million contract in the opening hours of the legal tampering period Monday. With Foles officially in the fold, Bortles is the clear casualty, despite having $6.5 million guaranteed on his own contract. Bortles may have to settle for a backup job with his new organization, but no matter if he holds a clipboard or takes the field, his days of relevance may be few and far between in the future.

Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Likely to be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars are expected to release Bortles despite owing him $6.5 million in guaranteed 2019 base salary, ESPN.com's Dan Graziano reports.

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell recently said Bortles is "still in the mix" at quarterback, but the 26-year-old likely will be cut once the team is confident in finding a replacement (read: Nick Foles). Jacksonville can free up $9.5 million in cap space if Bortles is designated as a post-June 1 release, spreading out the dead cap hit ($16.5 million) between 2019 and 2020. When all is said and done, the team likely will have paid him $26.5 million to play one season beyond his rookie contract -- an extra $6.5 million compared to if they'd simply let him play out his fifth-year option instead of offering a extension. Assuming the Jaguars find their replacement, Bortles may have to settle for high-end backup money on the open market this spring.
